LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A man on a backhoe led police on a slow-speed chase in Florida.

Police say the man went on a joyride, dumping boulders on the roadway. He then allegedly drove up-and-down a bridge for an hour-and-a-half, creating a lot of damage.

Officers gave chase as the driver switched directions several times.

Police eventually stopped the backhoe with spike strips when it left the bridge.

The driver was examined at a hospital and then taken to jail.
